The venue of the exhibition: Palazzo della Ragione

published on 29-08-2022

The exhibition is held in Palazzo della Ragione di Mantova, built in 1251, a remarkable medieval building in Piazza delle Erbe. Recently restored after the earthquake in 2012, on its walls it has large frescoes that recount the story of the community of Mantua.

The large rectangular hall of the palace is bare on the principal walls and has a completely modern roof frame. The important surviving frescoes cover, in several layers, the entrance wall (south-west wall) and the back wall (north-east wall), the one closest to the complex of the Palazzo del Podestà. However, the wall to the left of the entrance is also has traces of frescoes, as is the case of the various corners of the hall. This means that the pictorial surface formerly covered its whole surface.
